NEW YORK, July 19 — TV Land announced today that legendary comedic actor Tim Conway will appear in an upcoming episode of the critically-acclaimed hit TV Land sitcom, “Hot in Cleveland.” Also confirmed as guest stars in upcoming episodes are Dave Foley, Canadian comic actor, writer, director, producer and co-star of “The Kids in the Hall” and “NewsRadio,” Gary Anthony Williams from “Boston Legal” and 16-year-old Mark Indelicato, who played “Betty’s” fashion-obsessed nephew on ABC’s “Ugly Betty.”
Tim Conway, beloved for his hilarious characters on “The Carol Burnett Show,” goes toe-to-toe with Max (Carl Reiner) to win the heart of Elka (Betty White) in an episode entitled “It’s Not That Complicated,” scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, July 28th.
In “The Play’s the Thing” airing Wednesday, August 4th, Mark Indelicato plays “Zack,” a drama nerd and fan of Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) who invites his hero to give some notes on his school’s production of “Romeo & Juliet.” Gary Anthony Williams plays “Coach Taylor” who trains and treats the drama team like a football team, much to Zack’s dismay. Hilarity ensues when Ms. Chase ends up giving more than just a few notes.
Dave Foley joins the “Hot in Cleveland” cast for an episode as “Dr. Robert Moore,” the head of a local medical foundation who comes to see Victoria (Malick) when she fakes a deadly disease to gain sympathy and votes for her Emmy® nomination. “Good Luck Faking the Goiter” airs Wednesday, August 11th and also guest stars pop sensation Joe Jonas, lead singer of Jonas Brothers.
“Hot in Cleveland,” which airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesdays, stars sitcom favorites Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and 16-time Emmy®-nominee Betty White. The show, which has garnered great critical acclaim and record-breaking ratings, was picked up on July 7 for a second season of 20 episodes. The second season will begin production in October 2010 and is expected to premiere in January 2011 on TV Land.
“Hot in Cleveland” revolves around three fabulous best friends from LA – novelist Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli), eye-brow archer to the stars Joy Scroggs (Jane Leeves) and former soap star Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) – who find their lives changed forever when their plane, headed for Paris, makes an unexpected landing. When the friends discover that they are hot in Cleveland, they decide to stay. Starting over, they rent a house that happens to come with a very feisty caretaker (Betty White).
Filmed in front of a live studio audience, “Hot in Cleveland” is executive produced by Emmy® Award-winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions and is helmed by Emmy® Award-winning Suzanne Martin (“Frasier,” “Ellen”) serving as executive producer, show runner and writer. Lynda Obst also serves as executive producer.
